Teacher who had sex with student in classroom sentenced
A high school psychology teacher who had sex with a female student four times in a month in the back of his classroom has been sentenced.
The teacher, James Horgan, 46, of West Mifflin Area High School in western Pennsylvania was sentenced Thursday to five years of sex offender court probation with 25 years of Megan’s Law registration.
This, after Horgan, of Upper St. Clair, Allegheny County, pleaded to a single count of institutional sex assault after admitting to having sexual contact with one of his students.
TribLive.com reported the girl’s age was not released. Police interviewed her in April, and she told a detective she and the teacher had sex in the back of his classroom four times in March.
When police went to Horgan’s home on April 6, they say he admitted to having sex with the girl in the back of his classroom after school on three or four occasions, TribLive.com writes, adding: He is not allowed to have any further contact with the girl.
However, Horgan was still listed Thursday afternoon as an employee in the directory on the school district’s website.
